Rightclick image options

7 posts in this topic

My mom's pretty hopeless with computers, but she still loves taking pictures with her somewhat new digital camera. I was looking for a simple way to let her resize pictures and decided that right clicking the picture would be the best solution. However, I do not know how to add options to the right click menu... Anybody have any ideas?

Options: (Hopefully one of these suites you! :D )

1. Create a walkthrough guide for things like opening pictures, printing, etc.

2. Use the registry (Confusing!)

3. Create a GUI with your own context menu. (Easy!!!)

I would prefer the second option, but might opt for the first. The third one is an option too... Actually, that sounds good, I could do some sort of drag and drop thing that automatically resizes it... I'll look into that. Thanks for the idea.

I would do something like make an app that wraps around something like Irfanview, which resizes the image (The easy part) and let the picture be passed to the command line.

Then compile it, and place it in your Sendto folder (Google it, I forget where it is located), then your mom can just Right-click -->Send to --> Resize Image or whatever you compile the executable as (The other easy part :D )

That seems to be the easiest option so far. I figured out the second part (C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\SendTo), but I'm not sure how I would go about the first. I have IrfanView but I don't know how to let the app use it. I would want this to be something hidden so that my mom can't screw it up by accidentally clicking something.

Doesn't IrfanView have command line parameters?
